Our Plan

The 2016-2021 SACNAS strategic plan is a platform to drive change, broaden our network, and strengthen opportunities for our members.

SACNAS Will...

Be PROACTIVE:
We will have a strong infrastructure to pursue strategic directions and act on opportunities and partnerships.

Have A STRONG NATIONAL VOICE:
SACNAS has the opportunity, experience, and expertise to serve as a central thought leader in the STEM diversity movement.

Have LARGE-SCALE IMPACT:
Over the course of our 40+ year history, SACNAS has changed lives. We have opened the doors of opportunity and access to thousands of students and professionals by helping build their confidence, introducing them to a network of mentors, and creating space for them to learn about graduate schools and careers. Now it is time to turn this individual impact into large scale impact, creating a critical mass of STEM leaders from underrepresented communities.
